The Pennine Soaring Club may not be the largest Hang gliding and Paragliding club in the UK (just yet!) but we're one of the most active and have certainly proved ourselves to be THE BEST!

We have great flying sites to cover most wind directions with some of the best XC potential in the UK...

... and welcome visiting pilots to fly The Pennines with open arms. (See our site guide). Although we currently do not run a strict Members Only policy we would rather have you on our team. Not only because of the benefits to you, but also because over the years we have negotiated agreements with farmers and landowners and would like to keep them as happy with flying as we are! 

 As well as this website, we also have a facebook page at


If you really need any extra encouragement... browse through some of the most stunning and dramatic photos and videos taken by our very own club members in the galleries. This site is where we can upload and share our visual memories of a fantastic flying holiday, epic day out or simply a giggle while para-waiting.

To upload an image, simply join the Pennine Soaring Club and log on as a member. You can allocate your own space to upload and tag your photos… it's good to share!

Besides… it would be great to get to know you! Join The Pennine Soaring Club today!
